    I'm curious to hear the experiences of others with distance running while being Keto. I'm in the second week of training for a half marathon in April. I've had no problem running 3 miles fasted for around 22 hours, but I'm interested in the possible need to fuel with fat on longer runs. Last October I completed a 10k after doing a fat fast for 5 days and then the morning of the race ate three eggs fried in a ton of butter. I actually beat my best training time by a decent amount with this plan, but 13.1 miles could require a different strategy. Thanks for any tips and Keto on!
